Well the weather has been improving out here recently and this week we put our Florida competition to shame. While they had tornadoes, torrential rain, thunderstorms and flooding, we had blue skies up above, everyone’s in love. high forties at night, mid seventies in the day. Eat your hearts out Gator people!

Thursdays are hike day at the Old Campground and today we took an 8 mile, punishing hike out over the barren desert wasteland to some abandoned turquoise mines. We left at 8:30 and got back at 1 p.m.
